The Point Roberts Arts and Music Festival will turn 20 this year and organizers have chosen a “blast from the past” theme, celebrating past festivals and the music, trends and styles that went with them.
Festival organizers are booking performers and vendors until June 15 through a redesigned website at pointrobertsartsandmusicfestival.com. “Spots are filling up fast,” said organizer Kaitlyn O’Neill.
This year’s festival will also focus on sustainability, and the website has information about how not only festival-goers but the community as a whole can reduce their waste. O’Neill said they were establishing a comprehensive recycling program for the festival and measuring waste with the goal of becoming a zero-waste event in the future. “We’re requiring all vendors to avoid Styrofoam and use sustainable and compostable items,” she said.
The festival will run Saturday, August 2 and Sunday, August 3 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
